This paper presents part of the findings of research which investigated family-school communication. It explores the information schools and families exchange during teacher-parent briefings and investigates how this information is interpreted and utilised in state primary schools in Cyprus. The research was a case study. Seven teachers, their pupils and the respective parents participated in the study. A number of briefings between parents and these teachers were observed and audio recorded. After such meetings, a number of parents were interviewed individually or in focus-groups. The data analysis involved both qualitative and quantitative content analysis. The analysis indicated that the content of parents and teachers briefings focused on specific aspects of the children's school-life. Differences as far as the use of the information received were distinguished amongst types of parent. Particular groups of parents seemed unable to interpret or effectively make use of the information they received in order to support their children's schooling, whereas others appeared more successful.

Finally, it is suggested that, despite the pedagogical value placed on teacher-parent briefings, these might not succeed in fulfilling their purpose of fostering children's school performance for all pupils and that they might even consolidate or widen existing stratification among pupils of certain family environments (author abstract)
